Top 10 Best Beard Trimmers for Men in India 2016

Many men are not fan of a clean shaven face. If you come in this category of men, what you need is a beard trimmer. It is a device which will make you well groomed while managing to keep hair on your face. Moreover, it is a must-have tool for any man that keeps a beard and likes to keep it looking neat, tidy, even, and unchanging. It will allow you to keep your facial hair without having to fully shave it or let it grow wild. Also trimmer lets you keep your hair smooth unlike shaving which makes them hard.

Due to lack of time, I had been procrastinating on shaving due to it consuming my precious time. Trimmer consumes less time so I started to research for a decent value for money beard trimmer. I was open to both shavers and trimmers. Now I use a combination of both shaving and trimming. In my research, I got to know about many tips for choosing the beard trimmer and also about which are the best beard trimmer options for Indians. I am sharing the following guide that gives tips based on my research for the best beard trimmer.


Tips for Choosing the Best Beard Trimmer for Your Needs


1) Can it be used while charging/corded ? -  What will happen if you wake up one morning and find the charge of your trimmer completely gone? Moreover you find that the trimmer can't be used while charging and you are already late for college/work. To escape such situations, the best bet is to choose a beard trimmer which can be used while on charging.

2) Charge Time - It is the time that the trimmer takes to fully charge. Let's say you wake up at 6 AM and you have to go somewhere 9 AM. You check the trimmer and see that it's out of charge.You have a trimmer that can't be used while charging and the charging time of your trimmer is 10 hours. That means your trimmer will charge completely at 4 PM. To escape such situations, buy a trimmer with a charging time of 1 hour. That will give you enough time to fully charge your trimmer till 7 AM. The better way is to buy a trimmer that can be used while charging.


3) Runtime - It is the time that the trimmer can be used after full charging. Get a trimmer with at least 45 - 60 minutes runtime. Otherwise you will have to charge in-between trimming if you take a long time in trimming.


4) Blades - They are the ones which come in contact with your skin. You don't want accidental cuts and blade irritations. Get a trimmer whose blades are at least made of stainless steel and has rounded tips and non-scratching combs for extra protection and comfort. Aside steel blades, modern blades are titanium coated, which makes them last a while. In the same vein, some trimmers come with self-sharpening blades. This simply means they sharpen themselves and will deliver high performance for many years to come. You really don’t have to bother about changing blades or sharpening them.


5) Precision/Lock-In Length Setting - The best trimmers give the precision up to 0.5 mm. The locking length settings enable you to lock in the blades of your moustache and beard trimmer at certain lengths (usually from one millimetre up) and achieve the most accurate shaving and trimming experience.


Now you know what to look while choosing the best beard trimmer for you. Here is the list of top best beard trimmers for men in India to buy online :

  8. Hi Tarun thanks a lot for this grt article.I am going with Philips QT4011/15 Pro Skin Advance Trimmer.My question is that I have Old Philips Trimmer QT4019/15 which bought on April 2013,it still works like a charm and even can be used while charging(but not washable),so I am thinking to use my old Philips trimmer QT4019/15 to trim my arm pits and use the New Phillips QT4011/1Pro Skin for trimming beard only.So is it advisable to use my old Philips QT4019/15 to trim my arm pits???Would it cause any problems to me??? I mean is my old Philips QT 4019/15 designed to trim my arm pits???Or is there any trimmer specifically designed by Phillips for Arm pits(should also be chargeable while using) ?? I found three Phillips Body Grommers in Amazon India model numbers are Philips BG 105/11,Philips Body Groom BG1024 & Phillips BG 1025/15 but all have Bad user reviews which trims body hairs very late and also is said that it doesn't trim the body hairs properly and doesn't have Charging while using feature.Waiting for your response,thanks in advance!
